For some reason that we, frankly, can’t put our finger on, Mitt Romney is the latest to chime in on the Roy Moore scandal, and has advised that Moore “step aside,” after it was alleged that he made sexual advances on young girls.
Mitt Romney, a former failed presidential candidate, weighed in on Twitter following the release Thursday of a Washington Post report alleging Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore made sexual advances to women as young as 14 four decades ago.
“Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”
In the Post article, Corfman claimed that when she was 14, Moore initiated sexual contact, including taking her to a secluded location, where he made inappropriate advances.
Moore has categorically denied the claims Corfman and three other women made, calling the Post report defamatory and politically motivated, coming just weeks ahead of a special election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Ok, that’s all well and good that Romney has an opinion on the subject, I guess, but is there any reason that Moore – or, frankly, anyone at all – should listen to Romney? What do you think? Does Romney have a point? Should Moore step aside in the race? Let us know your thoughts below.
